This book has been exactly what I needed to grow my social enterprise. It contains so much useful and interesting information in easy to understand chapters. I have brought a number of books that I thought would help me create and grow my social enterprise only to be disappointed.
I have found them difficult to understand and I quickly lost interest, However this book is completely different. I read it within a week and regularly go back to different chapters to help me at certain parts of my journey. I would certainly recommend this book to anyone looking to start or grow their social enterprise.
